The Royal Mint blog

Blog Overview

The Royal Mint is one of the world’s oldest organisations, having made the coins that we all use every day for more than 1,000 years. On The Royal Mint blog, our aim is to tell the story of an historic British institution in a contemporary and engaging way, bringing to life the stories behind the billions of coins we strike every year, including coins for around 60 other countries across the globe. Storytelling is at the heart of coin-making, from the commemorative coins we strike today to mark significant anniversaries and events, to the historical coins we have struck through the ages - each with their own unique story to tell. As you can imagine, on The Royal Mint blog we have a wide variety of content covering a range of interests. From coin collecting to arts and culture, design, royalty, history and investment; we like to think there’s something for everyone!
